|ADP Workforce Now Pros||ADP Workforce Now Cons|
Very easy to use with nicely formatted Excel output. (Note: This is the predominant, but not unanimous view).
|Time and attendance
Time and attendance is difficult to set up correctly. Some users report bugs.
Very easy for employees to change W-4's etc. Time-off requests also well handled.
Some issues with support for new browser versions, particularly IE.
High quality customer service with knowledgeable teams, although little cross-function knowledge.
These two sides of the product are very independent with their own reports and support teams. It would be beneficial if they were more integrated.
Very strong payroll and benefits features. This is the area where ADP excels with some reviewers reporting flawless performance.
Talent management capabilities are generally immature.
